Chrysler Issues TSB for Jeep Death Wobble

Jeep has released a technical service bulletin (TSB) which deals with severe vibrations in the front axle of 2005 to 2010 model year Jeep Wranglers, dubbed the “death wobble” by two members of Congress.

The TSB has been distributed to Jeep dealers, NHTSA, and posted on numerous online forums so that owners of affected Wranglers can get access to the information. Chrysler recommends that affected owners bring their vehicles into Jeep dealerships to have the issue inspected.

The bulletin cites aftermarket parts as the most common cause of the wobble. It also reminds Jeep owners to constantly check and maintain the front axle, as well as the steering system, as damaged or unmaintained parts can also lead to the death wobble. The death wobble most often occurs as speeds over 45 mph, and when the vehicle is on uneven surfaces.

Rep. Anna Eshoo and Rep. Henry Waxman demanded a fix from Chrysler earlier this year, and now are praising the company for finally addressing the problem. “Anyone who has experienced ‘wobble’ has been legitimately frightened for their safety,” Eshoo said in a statement. “Chrysler’s decision to issue an official method of repair for this problem is the right thing to do for its customers and for the safety of others on the road.”

Despite the “death wobble” moniker, no deaths have been reported as a result of these issues.

    To “The Few Who Represent The Many” in our Country a true
    Nation “The United States of America” with the highest of standards founded by
    our Forefathers. 

     

    As a citizen of The United States of America with
    Constitutional Rights and Consumer Rights, I will not mince words regarding the
    corrupt activity regarding the “Old/New Chrysler Jeep Death Wobble “ by all
    parties involved…..affecting 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 Chrysler
    Jeeps.  After much research this Chrysler
    Jeep design/manufacture defect has existed for many, many years but the fact of
    the matter is the defect was not redesigned or designed out in all these years
    and in the new series of 2 door and 4 door Chrysler Jeeps presented to the
    consumer in 2007. Chrysler along with NHTSA did not then, and will not to this
    day, take the “Jeep Death Wobble” complaints seriously (the thousands of very
    serious complaints).  This dangerous and
    very disturbing steering safety issue is due to the poor Chrysler design/manufacture
    defect in these Jeeps that causes, and has caused crashes, accidents, and/or
    death.  As far as Chrysler and NHTSA are
    concerned, this dangerous and life threatening defect does not exist and will never
    cause death!, Only crashes and accidents! 
    We as consumers are liable for any negative outcome due to “The Jeep
    Death Wobble”; and when the consumer gets in a crash, accident, injures
    someone, kills someone due to this defect, unless we can prove it was ‘The Jeep
    Death Wobble” that Chrysler and NHTSA say is not a safety issue or of concern (even
    though thousands upon thousands of jeep consumers beg to differ)  we are liable for Chrysler’s safety defect
    that causes crashes and accidents that may lead to death to the consumer and
    those drivers sharing the road.  Drivers
    sharing the road also have a right to have “Jeep Consumers” driving safe
    vehicles.

     

    Chrysler states “Chrysler Jeeps are built differently”…Chrysler
    consumers state “What is different than safe!!!”  I state what is different than safe in any
    product put on the market in the United States of America.

     

    NHTSA, an agency of the Executive Branch of the United
    States Government and part of the Department of Transportation, describes its
    mission as… “Save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle related crashes.”  NHTSA is supposed to be promoting safety to
    all vehicles on the road…not contributing to unsafe Jeeps or any dangerous
    vehicles on the road!  NHTSA is also
    denying the truth and leaving us the Jeep Consumers liable when they have
    thousands upon thousands of reports on “The Jeep Death Wobble” (also known as
    the “Steering Shimmy”) and all the stories are the same; it is definitely a
    defect and dangerous safety issue that has no guaranteed repair.  It is life threatening and regardless…. When
    did faulty products become the consumer’s problem?  Thousands of Consumers have complained,
    written, and spoke the truth about this serious subject “The Jeep Death Wobble”
    to the responsible and appropriate parties to no avail.  All the complaints are the same, sad, true,
    and no answers. We the people of the United States of America, Jeep Consumers
    would like this serious issue addressed and dealt with by the appropriate and responsible
    parties.  Their life threatening, defective
    product that should not be on the market with this safety concern since it
    poses a threat and identifiable harm to public safety.

    Faithful Chrysler Jeep Consumers are spending hundreds, if
    not thousands, of hard earned dollars to repair a defect that we as Chrysler Jeep
    Consumers did not cause.  Consumers
    should not bear the burden or cost to correct a Jeep defect that is well known
    by Chrysler and the NHTSA.  We as
    Chrysler Consumers should not have to pay for Jeep Death Wobble repairs on
    Faulty Goods with life threatening steering issues that have no guaranteed repair
    and should not have been put on the market to begin with and/or the defect
    should have been disclosed at the time of sale/purchase to give the Chrysler
    consumer an option due to the dangerous safety issue. -“The Jeep DEATH Wobble”
    … I would never have purchased the Jeep, much less spent my hard earned money,
    if I had known of the Jeeps defect and how it leads to accidents, crashes, and
    possible death due to the loss of steering. It should have never been
    authorized to be on the market with the existing dangerous defect.

     

    The FTC put out a bulletin and warnings to be used on these
    Jeeps and it is not being respected and/or lawfully enforced to be put on these
    defective Jeeps in order to save the consumers lives, and the consumers hard
    earned dollars, that in the end we are liable and may lose everything including
    our lives due to this silent fraud.  This
    is about taking responsibility, having proper ethics, morals and principles.  This safety defect is affecting our daily lives,
    our work lives and our weekend lives in a very negative way for purchasing a
    defective Jeep that is dangerous and scary to drive.  Our only reward as a Chrysler Jeep Consumer
    is to be completely liable for Chryslers design/manufacture defect that causes Jeep
    Death Wobble Crashes, Jeep Death Wobble Accidents that may lead to Jeep Death Wobble
    Death to the Jeep consumer and those driving or walking around us due to the
    loss in steering control.

     

    The Unconstitutional behavior by all involved in this silent
    fraudulent Bailout/Bankruptcy Chapter 11 in The United States of America is
    undeniably Corruption to the Highest Degree the fact that Chrysler will not
    take responsibility for the dangerous, life threatening vehicles that were put
    on the market with the well known design and manufacture defect “THE JEEP DEATH
    WOBBLE” which Chrysler calls “The Jeep Steering Shimmy”.  I guess they have not driven their product
    and experienced the horrible, life threatening loss of steering at any and all
    speeds, smooth terrain to bumpy terrain… where the Chrysler Jeep Death Wobble takes
    complete and violent control over your steering and this should not be in any
    vehicle, brand new or used.

     

    Chrysler consumers are being forced to spend hundreds to
    thousands of hard earned dollars to repair a defect with no guaranteed repair
    and one may still crash, have an accident and/or die if not hurt others on the
    road in between repairs and be completely liable, Chrysler Jeep Consumers are
    being forced to sell the vehicle losing thousands of hard earned dollars and not
    revealing the life threatening defect would be the same corruption just going around
    and around with a life threatening defect, a death wish for the next
    owners.  The FTC flyers are not being
    respected, posted or enforced on these vehicles.  Chrysler Jeep Consumers are being treated with
    such malice and corruption.

     

    There exists a Bankruptcy Chapter 11 (Official Form), when
    asked upon filing for Bankruptcy with:

    The United
    States Bankruptcy Court

    Southern District of New York

     

    Exhibit C – Does the Debtor own or have  possession of any property that poses or is
    alleged to pose a threat of imminent and identifiable harm to public health or
    safety?

     

    The box checked was – “NO”

     

    The Jeep Death Wobble (an appropriate name given by the
    consumers) a well known defect aka –“The Jeep Steering Shimmy” (a name to make
    it seem minor given by Chrysler) affecting thousands upon thousands of Jeeps by
    law must have been disclosed for the potential liability with these dangerous
    Jeeps in The United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York when
    Chrysler LLC filed for Bankruptcy Chapter 11 under his Honor Judge Arthur
    Gonzales.

     

    I cannot imagine his Honor Judge Arthur Gonzales or any Court
    appointed Judge in any Courtroom in the United States
    of America under law would ever deny thousands upon
    thousands of United States
    of America Citizens and Consumers their Constitutional
    and Consumer Rights. Due to potential Silent Fraud by Chrysler or potential Innocent
    Misrepresentation and not provide Potential Product Liability Facts on this
    serious issue wanting to be free and clear of any Liabilities pertaining to this
    dangerous life threatening defect that is affecting thousands upon thousands of
    Jeeps and is not of the consumers doing. We are Chrysler Jeep Consumers and are
    seriously liable for a design/manufacture defect that has caused crashes,
    accidents that may lead to death due to Bankruptcy Chapter 11 Corruption.

     

    Chrysler’s Attempt at
    Addressing the Issue:

    2007-2010 Jeep Steering Damper measures 1¼” Body uses 2 bolts

    2011-2012 Jeep Steering Damper measures 1 ½” removed 2 bolts
    added a metal band and 1 bolt.

    “The Old/New Chrysler one in the same” made the change above
    to their Jeep models 2011, 2012 now these Jeeps are also experiencing “The Jeep
    Death Wobble”.

     

    Consumer rights state that when one purchases a product from
    a trader the item must be:

    Of
    satisfactory quality – last for the time you would expect it to and be
    free of any defects.
    Fit
    for purpose – fit for the use described and any specific use you made clear
    to the trader.
    As
    described – match the description on the packaging or what the trader told
    you.

     

    As far as my/our consumer rights in the above mentioned:

    The
    2007 Jeep Wrangler 4 Door X Unlimited did not last the time any vehicle purchased
    brand new and well maintained would be expected to last and was not free
    of any defects.  Purchased brand new
    March, 2007, well maintained with synthetic oil, never altered completely
    stock – Defect appeared August 2010 with only 35,000 miles.  Due to Chrysler’s negative response wanting
    to be free and clear and putting the blame on the consumer or claiming
    comparative damages, I have not let any one person tamper with the Jeep
    for there exists no guaranteed repair and Chrysler would blame me the
    consumer for their defective products misbehavior in the steering.
    Everything is as it was when I left the dealership.  The defect is real and I want relief to
    be granted please.
    The
    2007 Jeep Wrangler 4 Door X Unlimited is unsafe to drive and therefore it
    is not fit for the purpose it was intended for, which is to be driven.
    As
    described in any Chrysler Jeep advertisement, Jeeps are tough and go over
    rough terrain.  The 2007 Jeep
    Wrangler X Unlimited shakes very violently on a smooth road or if there is
    an uneven patch on the road or a little bump in the road and at any given
    speed, anywhere from 15
    mph to 75 mph.  The 2007 Jeep does not match the
    description on the packaging and advertisements of a well built safe Jeep.

     

    If a product/item does not meet any of these rights it is
    faulty and I have a right to a:

    Repair-
    There is no guaranteed repair and I will not be liable and/or a statistic
    for purchasing a Chrysler Jeep that was supposed to be safe and is not!
    Replacement-
    I will accept what I should have received to begin with, a brand new of
    satisfactory quality vehicle free of any defects that lasts more than
    three years.
    Refund-
    I will accept a refund in full.

     

    I have been dealing with Chrysler,
    and the NHTSA since August of 2010.  It
    has been two years of begging for help for a Jeep defect that I did not cause and
    should not be my responsibility.  I am
    tired of taking busses. I purchased a brand new Jeep and have invested
    approximately $34,000 dollars towards it and cannot drive it due to the
    design/manufacture steering defect it has and Chrysler is forcing me to have an
    accident, crash and/or die or to sell the Jeep and lose approx $15,000 if not
    more.  I did not purchase a brand new
    vehicle to be put in a position of being forced into a negative situation in my
    life.  I have not paid it off and it is
    already broken not by my doing.  I am
    just a middle class single mother.  I was
    born and have remained in the most humble walks of life.  I have no wealthy or popular relations to help
    me get through this negative, corrupt, life changing experience for purchasing
    a brand new Jeep.

     

    In Summary to All Responsible
    Parties:

    “If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens
    you can never regain their respect and esteem.  It is true that you may fool all the people
    some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all the time, but you
    can’t fool all the people all the time.”

  • Frustrated JK owner

    I have a 2011 Jk stock (no modifacations) stock wheels it just hit 40,000 miles & has death wobble! It is absolutely ridiculous the amount of money we pay for these vehicles without any knowledge of this life threatening defect! It is more ridiculous that the fraudulent company hasn’t been held accountable & made to fix this defect! It is a slap in the face that the two Congress members who first demanded a fix are now praising this fraudulent company because they put out the TSB bullentin which doesn’t fix the problem! The NHTSA also just ignores the safety of the consumers of these faulty vehicles. It has been going on for years and has been reported & been reported but they are still just disregard it as though they don’t care about our safety! I wonder if we could try filing a class action law suit Miss Jeep. I am a 46 yr. old disa led widow who has never driven this vehicle off road or mistreated it any way. I drive to the grocery store & dr.appts. & fear for my life as well asas the life of others on the road everytime I drive it!

  • Awallace939

    I am a single mom too who had to stop paying on mine to get a cheaper, older and safer vehicle because i got nowhere with jeep/chrysler. Same exact problem and no resolution. I did file a complaint with the National Highway Safety before i said forget it…a refund of about $15,0000 would cover the hours i worked to pay $600 a month for 4 years! Mine was the 4 door 2007

    Thank you miss jeep you hit the nail right on the head it’s about the dollar and not the safety someone will be killed

    Chrysler is not addressing the Jeeps defect…they are letting the consumer address a problem that has no guaranteed repair and is dangerous…Chrysler step up and take resonsability .
    To “The Few Who Represent The Many” in our Country a true Nation “The United States of America” with the highest of standards founded by our Forefathers.

    I have a 05 that also has the problem

    To “The Few Who Represent The Many” in our Country a true Nation “The United States of America” with the highest of standards founded by our Forefathers.

    As a citizen of The United States of America with Constitutional Rights and Consumer Rights, I will not mince words regarding the corrupt activity regarding the “Old/New Chrysler Jeep Death Wobble “ by all parties involved…..affecting 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 Chrysler Jeeps. After much research this Chrysler Jeep design/manufacture defect has existed for many, many years but the fact of the matter is the defect was not redesigned or designed out in all these years and in the new series of 2 door and 4 door Chrysler Jeeps presented to the consumer in 2007. Chrysler along with NHTSA did not then, and will not to this day, take the “Jeep Death Wobble” complaints seriously (the thousands of very serious complaints).This dangerous and very disturbing steering safety issue is due to the poor Chrysler design/manufacture defect in these Jeeps that causes, and has caused crashes, accidents, and/or death.As far as Chrysler and NHTSA are concerned, this dangerous and life threatening defect does not exist and will never cause death!, Only crashes and accidents!We as consumers are liable for any negative outcome due to “The Jeep Death Wobble”; and when the consumer gets in a crash, accident, injures someone, kills someone due to this defect, unless we can prove it was ‘The Jeep Death Wobble” that Chrysler and NHTSA say is not a safety issue or of concern (even though thousands upon thousands of jeep consumers beg to differ) we are liable for Chrysler’s safety defect that causes crashes and accidents that may lead to death to the consumer and those drivers sharing the road. Drivers sharing the road also have a right to have “Jeep Consumers” driving safe vehicles.

    Chrysler states “Chrysler Jeeps are built differently”…Chrysler consumers state “What is different than safe!!!” I state what is different than safe in any product put on the market in the United States of America.

    NHTSA, an agency of the Executive Branch of the United States Government and part of the Department of Transportation, describes its mission as… “Save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle related crashes.” NHTSA is supposed to be promoting safety to all vehicles on the road…not contributing to unsafe Jeeps or any dangerous vehicles on the road! NHTSA is also denying the truth and leaving us the Jeep Consumers liable when they have thousands upon thousands of reports on “The Jeep Death Wobble” (also known as the “Steering Shimmy”) and all the stories are the same; it is definitely a defect and dangerous safety issue that has no guaranteed repair.It is life threatening and regardless…. When did faulty products become the consumer’s problem?Thousands of Consumers have complained, written, and spoke the truth about this serious subject “The Jeep Death Wobble” to the responsible and appropriate parties to no avail. All the complaints are the same, sad, true, and no answers. We the people of the United States of America, Jeep Consumers would like this serious issue addressed and dealt with by the appropriate and responsible parties.Their life threatening, defective product that should not be on the market with this safety concern since it poses a threat and identifiable harm to public safety.
    Faithful Chrysler Jeep Consumers are spending hundreds, if not thousands, of hard earned dollars to repair a defect that we as Chrysler Jeep Consumers did not cause.Consumers should not bear the burden or cost to correct a Jeep defect that is well known by Chrysler and the NHTSA.We as Chrysler Consumers should not have to pay for Jeep Death Wobble repairs on Faulty Goods with life threatening steering issues that have no guaranteed repair and should not have been put on the market to begin with and/or the defect should have been disclosed at the time of sale/purchase to give the Chrysler consumer an option due to the dangerous safety issue. -“The Jeep DEATH Wobble” … I would never have purchased the Jeep, much less spent my hard earned money, if I had known of the Jeeps defect and how it leads to accidents, crashes, and possible death due to the loss of steering. It should have never been authorized to be on the market with the existing dangerous defect.

    The FTC put out a bulletin and warnings to be used on these Jeeps and it is not being respected and/or lawfully enforced to be put on these defective Jeeps in order to save the consumers lives, and the consumers hard earned dollars, that in the end we are liable and may lose everything including our lives due to this silent fraud. This is about taking responsibility, having proper ethics, morals and principles.This safety defect is affecting our daily lives, our work lives and our weekend lives in a very negative way for purchasing a defective Jeep that is dangerous and scary to drive.Our only reward as a Chrysler Jeep Consumer is to be completely liable for Chryslers design/manufacture defect that causes Jeep Death Wobble Crashes, Jeep Death Wobble Accidents that may lead to Jeep Death Wobble Death to the Jeep consumer and those driving or walking around us due to the loss in steering control.

    The Unconstitutional behavior by all involved in this silent fraudulent Bailout/Bankruptcy Chapter 11 in The United States of America is undeniably Corruption to the Highest Degree the fact that Chrysler will not take responsibility for the dangerous, life threatening vehicles that were put on the market with the well known design and manufacture defect “THE JEEP DEATH WOBBLE” which Chrysler calls “The Jeep Steering Shimmy”.I guess they have not driven their product and experienced the horrible, life threatening loss of steering at any and all speeds, smooth terrain to bumpy terrain… where the Chrysler Jeep Death Wobble takes complete and violent control over your steering and this should not be in any vehicle, brand new or used.

    Chrysler consumers are being forced to spend hundreds to thousands of hard earned dollars to repair a defect with no guaranteed repair and one may still crash, have an accident and/or die if not hurt others on the road in between repairs and be completely liable, Chrysler Jeep Consumers are being forced to sell the vehicle losing thousands of hard earned dollars and not revealing the life threatening defect would be the same corruption just going around and around with a life threatening defect, a death wish for the next owners.The FTC flyers are not being respected, posted or enforced on these vehicles. Chrysler Jeep Consumers are being treated with such malice and corruption.

    There exists a Bankruptcy Chapter 11 (Official Form), when asked upon filing for Bankruptcy with:
    The United States Bankruptcy Court
    Southern District of New York

    Exhibit C – Does the Debtor own or havepossession of any property that poses or is alleged to pose a threat of imminent and identifiable harm to public health or safety?

    The box checked was – “NO”

    The Jeep Death Wobble (an appropriate name given by the consumers) a well known defect aka –“The Jeep Steering Shimmy” (a name to make it seem minor given by Chrysler) affecting thousands upon thousands of Jeeps by law must have been disclosed for the potential liability with these dangerous Jeeps in The United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York when Chrysler LLC filed for Bankruptcy Chapter 11 under his Honor Judge Arthur Gonzales.

    I cannot imagine his Honor Judge Arthur Gonzales or any Court appointed Judge in any Courtroom in the United States of America under law would ever deny thousands upon thousands of United States of America Citizens and Consumers their Constitutional and Consumer Rights. Due to potential Silent Fraud by Chrysler or potential Innocent Misrepresentation and not provide Potential Product Liability Facts on this serious issue wanting to be free and clear of any Liabilities pertaining to this dangerous life threatening defect that is affecting thousands upon thousands of Jeeps and is not of the consumers doing. We are Chrysler Jeep Consumers and are seriously liable for a design/manufacture defect that has caused crashes, accidents that may lead to death due to Bankruptcy Chapter 11 Corruption.

    Chrysler’s Attempt at Addressing the Issue:
    2007-2010 Jeep Steering Damper measures 1¼” Body uses 2 bolts
    2011-2012 Jeep Steering Damper measures 1 ½” removed 2 bolts added a metal band and 1 bolt.
    “The Old/New Chrysler one in the same” made the change above to their Jeep models 2011, 2012 now these Jeeps are also experiencing “The Jeep Death Wobble”.

    Consumer rights state that when one purchases a product from a trader the item must be:
    Of satisfactory quality – last for the time you would expect it to and be free of any defects. Fit for purpose – fit for the use described and any specific use you made clear to the trader. As described – match the description on the packaging or what the trader told you.

    As far as my/our consumer rights in the above mentioned:
    The 2007 Jeep Wrangler 4 Door X Unlimited did not last the time any vehicle purchased brand new and well maintained would be expected to last and was not free of any defects. Purchased brand new March, 2007, well maintained with synthetic oil, never altered completely stock – Defect appeared August 2010 with only 35,000 miles. Due to Chrysler’s negative response wanting to be free and clear and putting the blame on the consumer or claiming comparative damages, I have not let any one person tamper with the Jeep for there exists no guaranteed repair and Chrysler would blame me the consumer for their defective products misbehavior in the steering. Everything is as it was when I left the dealership. The defect is real and I want relief to be granted please. The 2007 Jeep Wrangler 4 Door X Unlimited is unsafe to drive and therefore it is not fit for the purpose it was intended for, which is to be driven. As described in any Chrysler Jeep advertisement, Jeeps are tough and go over rough terrain. The 2007 Jeep Wrangler X Unlimited shakes very violently on a smooth road or if there is an uneven patch on the road or a little bump in the road and at any given speed, anywhere from 15 mph to 75 mph. The 2007 Jeep does not match the description on the packaging and advertisements of a well built safe Jeep.

    If a product/item does not meet any of these rights it is faulty and I have a right to a:
    Repair- There is no guaranteed repair and I will not be liable and/or a statistic for purchasing a Chrysler Jeep that was supposed to be safe and is not! Replacement- I will accept what I should have received to begin with, a brand new of satisfactory quality vehicle free of any defects that lasts more than three years. Refund- I will accept a refund in full.

    I have been dealing with Chrysler, and the NHTSA since August of 2010.It has been two years of begging for help for a Jeep defect that I did not cause and should not be my responsibility. I am tired of taking busses. I purchased a brand new Jeep and have invested approximately $34,000 dollars towards it and cannot drive it due to the design/manufacture steering defect it has and Chrysler is forcing me to have an accident, crash and/or die or to sell the Jeep and lose approx $15,000 if not more.I did not purchase a brand new vehicle to be put in a position of being forced into a negative situation in my life. I have not paid it off and it is already broken not by my doing. I am just a middle class single mother. I was born and have remained in the most humble walks of life. I have no wealthy or popular relations to help me get through this negative, corrupt, life changing experience for purchasing a brand new Jeep.

    In Summary to All Responsible Parties:
    “If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”
